This is my interpretation of the bio-raptor from the Zoids Genesis anime series. If youve been to the store recently, you'll know which set I salvaged for this. I find the herofactory parts make it more life like.
About this creation
This set enphasizes mostly new model biulding techniques.To start off, those eye pieces are those little horn things that hero factory villans have. The teeth are also hero factory horns. I found it difficult to find a way to stick them on the roof of the mouth. If anyone knows a better way other than what I did, I would love to learn how.
The feet were tricky because I was trying to make the claws independant of one another. Im not going to try to explain it to you because it's way too complicated to describe. One big difference between the real bio-raptor and this one is that real BRs have really skinny legs. Well, they basically have skinny everything,which sadly makes this model slightly more unrealistic.
I like to think of it as a cross between a bio-raptor and a beserk fury,or a bio-raptor with a beserk fury tail and feet.I tried to maker the model as limbur as possibe. Sadly, it only has the option of moving side to side and cannot lift its head(it doesnt really have a neck).
You may notice that there is no minifigure pilot to be seen. This is because bio-zoids are usually piloted by human souls and not human drivers(usually).Also, there is no room in the head to put one and since the set is made up of almost all technic parts(and the fact that its supposed to look like a skeleton)there is nowhere to put one. Ill end with a small comment.
I always liked how the japanese voice actors in Zoids Genesis said bio-raptor. They pronounced it byo-rupor. Its so awesome!!!!
Oh, and if you dont know which set this came from, it came from hero factory's Witch Doctor. The head came from that snow speeder set from Star Wars TCW.
5/5 :D Hello Joseph ... when seeing your work, I clearly understand your worries about statics issues of my ship. I just want to tell you I am much impressed by your work, with Zoids especially. I am trying to do something similiar in spaceships, to give them organic structure and functions. I see how hard is to make mechs without bionicle bricks, because those classic ones are too heavy and much less combinable, so building with them is difficult. I know that it would be hard, but I suggest you to take more photos from joints and other structural issues to show your best. Wishing al the best, Michal
bulky legs can be forgiven, i know how difficult it can be to make accurate zoids in the lego medium. i dont have enough single-color parts to make a large zoid so all mine are in the small scale. it indeed looks quite accurate other than color issues, but also forgivable due to no silver parts. good to see another zoids fan building on here!
